NASCAR at Kansas live race updates, results, highlights from AdventHealth 400

It was a tension-filled affair at last week’s Goodyear 400. Team Penske’s Joey Logano claimed victory at the death, bumping Hendrick Motorsports ’William Byron in the final stretch to notch his first win on asphalt since the 2020 Hollywood Casino 400.

Logano starts today’s race, the AdventHealth 400, in the No. 34 position. Interactions between him and Byron, who is seeking his third win of the Cup Series, will be worth watching.

Held at Kansas Speedway, the AdventHealth 400 is one of the most grueling tests on asphalt; 267 laps on an oval-shaped, 1.5-mile track. Christopher Bell earned pole position in qualifying. He has had a decent run in recent weeks, notching top ten finishes in each of his last two races. Now, he’ll be hoping to do himself one better and secure his first win since last year’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 at Daytona.

NASCAR at Kansas live updates, highlights from AdventHealth 400

4:49 pm – Kevin Harvick is the next driver to take a spill, jolting into the middle of the track after coming off the pit road. Caution flag galore!

4:36 pm – Byron is in trouble! He had been leading comfortably through much of the second stage but appears to have popped his tire on some debris left on the track. He is dropping like a stone in the race standings and seems unlikely to compete for the AdventHealth 400 title now.

4:31 pm – Austin Cindric has done well to overcome an uneven start. After having some car difficulties early, Cindric has driven smoothly. He sits in 30th place, comfortably behind the pace of Byron, Chastain and Kurt Busch. However, he’s still doing decently, given his poor start.

4:22 pm – William Byron uses the inside lane to pass by Reddick and Chastain, snatching first place in the process. Chastain and Reddick are less than a second behind, though.

4:12 pm – Kyle Busch captures the Stage 1 green flag, outpacing Chastain and Elliott, who finish in second-place and third-place, respectively. Busch holds nearly a one-second edge over Chastain.

4:07 pm – Kyle Busch leads the way after 75 laps, followed by Ross Chastain’s No. 1 car and Chase Elliott in third. Bell has struggled to maintain his position after a good start, falling to 16th-place.

3:56 pm – Another lap, another caution flag, this time for No. 99 Emperor, Daniel Suarez. Suarez’s back left tire is looking flat and gnarly, almost as if he drove over something sharp. He spun out toward the middle of the track, prompting race officials to wave the yellow flag. Unfortunate stuff.

3:49 pm – Bell regained the lead and his holding off Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch, who sits less than a second behind him. A lot of tight racing so far, with the pack constantly reshuffling.

3:37 pm – Caution flag waved as BJ McLeod spins toward the inside lane. Part of the top of McLeod’s car appears to be displaced. Racers now headed to their pit crews.

3:32 pm – Reddick leads the way after 31 laps. Kyle Larson is in second place, less than a third of a second behind Reddick. One person who is nowhere near the front is Joey Logano. He’s driving a replacement car after suffering a wreck during qualifying and has struggled to keep up with the pack so far.

3:23 pm – The race restart did a toll on Joe Gibbs’ Racing’s Christopher Bell, who entered today’s race in pole position. Through 11 laps, Bell is sitting in third place, about two seconds behind Tyler Reddick’s No. 8 car. It will be interesting to see how Bell handles dirty air in the early parts of the race.

3:15 pm – Six laps in and we already have our first caution flag of the day! Chase Briscoe’s No. 14 car spins off the asphalt and skews along the infield grass. Briscoe did a good job of adjusting, though, and doesn’t appear to have suffered any damage.
